Rick Veitch wraps the conspiracy "theories" behind September 11th, 2001 into a nice little package with The Big Lie, a one shot set an hour before the planes hit the WTC buildings.

Regardless what your thoughts on what really happened that awful day, some of the facts and information that has come out (if you care to dig) are as a matter of fact - quite suspect.

And credit to Veitch, he doesn't go about presenting his point-of-view in such a manner as to seem like a conspiracy nut, but uses simple facts and explanation to get the reader thinking. Essentially, with The Big Lie, it makes you want to go out and prove to yourself what really happened. 

And that is a good thing.

The Big Lie, obviously a reference to Hitler and Nazi Germany, simply means the bigger the lie the more people will believe it. Quite frankly, a majority will just turn aside as they simply won't believe what is right in front of their face - until it is too late. This is what Rick Veitch gives us from the perspective of a Risk Assessment Corporation housed in the WTC building. However, Veitch also adds a neat time travel element, in that one of the execs wives travels back in time to warn her husband in an attempt to save him. Also, the team happens to be working with a certain Hollywood mogul by the name of "Stephen" - who happens to want a blown-up skyscraper in his next film.

While they think this is all a ruse on the part of "Stephen," they play along and decide to counter the arguments presented in the video evidence before them - which really is a counter to the official explanations we have been given in regards to 911. Veitch offers up evidence, and I suppose you could call it opinions, on what really occurred or may have. 

Again, what it does is gets you thinking.

You can choose to read The Big Lie with a grain of salt, or quite possibly as something more. What it comes down to really is your own thoughts and feelings.

Good read.
